Pain Alliance Europe (PAE) was aware that surveys were being conducted to find out how COVID-19 is affecting specific target groups. PAE has run a survey to find out how the pandemic affects chronic pain patients across Europe.
With the scientific knowledge and support of the European Pain Federation (EFIC) and Grünenthal as sponsor, PAE was able to develop and execute a survey in 12 languages within a time span of 6 weeks.
This was made possible with help from volunteers within PAE’s member associations.
The analysis was done on a voluntary basis by Professor Kevin E Vowles, School of Psychology, Queen’s University, Belfast.
The first results were presented to PAE members at the PAE General Assembly. You can see them here. The complete analysis and comparison with other surveys will be done in the weeks to come.
The complete outcome will be available on the PAE website. Stay tuned!
